This five-week EVO session starting January 10, 2016 and ending February 14, 2016 introduces participants to the principles of copyright and fair use with regard to creating lesson materials and gives us an opportunity to speak with a legal expert on the topic. Although we will mainly focus on best practices for educators in the United States, many of the basic principles will be transferable, and participants are encouraged to do research on and share their knowledge of copyright laws in their local contexts. Together, we will reflect on our current practices when developing lesson materials; learn more about copyright, fair use, the Framework Analysis, as well as how to use public domain and creative commons resources; and examine how to manage such resources responsibly. Finally, we will share our copyright compliant lesson plans with one another, and provide and reflect on constructive feedback. The session will be facilitated primarily through Google+ Communities.
